Mission & Values

Strong & Courageous

Starting in 2018, Good Shepherd began a journey to develop a new mission and vision statement to represent where our church has been and where we are sensing God's calling for the future.

OUR MISSION
In response to God’s love and grace we will:
Welcome as we have been welcomed,
Forgive as we have been forgiven &
Serve as we have been served.

OUR VISION
By the grace of God and the love of Jesus Christ,
We will meet each person where they are,
and invite them into transformative relationships with God, each other,
and the communities in which we live and serve.
We will cultivate and empower lay leaders
to support this life-changing work
at Good Shepherd and beyond.
